Author Information: Ramael Scully (or just Scully, as everyone calls him) was born in 1979 in Malaysia to a mother of Chinese and Indian heritage and a father with Malay and Irish blood. He moved to Sydney at the age of eight, with his mother and sister, where he went to school and then later to catering college. After several years cooking in Australia, Scully moved to London and started working at Ottolenghi Upper Street in 2005. He moved to the NOPI as head chef, when the restaurant opened in 2011. Scully's distinct culinary baggage – the Malaysian flavours of his childhood, his training in the European tradition, his insatiable appetite for Asian ingredients – has been the creative force behind much of what is on the NOPI menu.

Publications Date: October 2015 From the authors of the acclaimed cookbooks Eleven Madison Park and I Love New York comes this uniquely packaged cookbook, featuring recipes from the wildly popular restaurant and, as an added surprise, a hidden back panel that opens to reveal a separate cocktail book. Chef Daniel Humm and his business partner Will Guidara are the proprietors of two of New York’s most beloved and pioneering restaurants: Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad. Their team is known not only for its perfectly executed, innovative cooking, but also for creating extraordinary, genre-defying dining experiences. The NoMad Cookbooktranslates the unparalleled and often surprising food and drink of the restaurant into book form. What appears to be a traditional cookbook is in fact two books in one: upon opening, readers discover that the back half contains false pages in which a smaller cocktail recipe book is hidden. The result is a wonderfully unexpected collection of both sweet and savory food recipes and cocktail recipes, with the lush photography and impeccable style for which the authors are known. The NoMad Cookbook promises to be a reading experience like no other, and will be the holiday gift of the year for the foodie who has everything.

In 2003, he moved to the United States and became executive chef at San Francisco’s Campton Place, where he received four stars from the San Francisco Chronicle. Three years later, he became executive chef of Eleven Madison Park.
Hailing from Sleepy Hollow, New York, WILL GUIDARA has been immersed in the restaurant industry since the age of thirteen. He is a graduate of the school of hotel administration at Cornell University and attended culinary school in the north of Spain.
